Dental Home Initiative Launched in Maine


WABI TV News in Bangor, Maine, featured a report on the Maine Dental Home Initiative (DHI) Mentorship Team Launch held on March 23rd, 2012. Led by the state DHI leader, Dr. John Willis, the launch’s purpose was to teach, train, and coach pediatric dentists to mentor general dentists who are willing to take Head Start and Early Head Start patients (age birth to five). Maine does not have enough pediatric dentists to treat all the children needing dental care, so mentoring and training general dentists is a state DHI priority. Paltech’s Head Start Resource Center (HSRC) manages the DHI for the Office of Head Start and provided support for the launch.
